Hero of the Week: May 23, 2022: Kelly Patricia O’Meara

Without ever using the word “money,” a practice common among inspectors general (IGs), the deputy IG at the Pentagon read an eight-page summary of DOD fiduciary failures...

Did you ever see the 9/11 testimony when Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney grilled Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld during House hearings on the 2006 budget for the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) on the missing money and military contractor CSC DynCorp’s sex slave trafficking and involvement in administering the anthrax vaccines?

Well, the work that lies behind this powerful and legendary moment of congressional truth and that allowed Rep. McKinney to make these succinct statements and ask such well-placed questions goes back to Catherine Austin Fitts and our hero of the week—award-winning investigative journalist, author, and fearless truth-teller Kelly Patricia O’Meara.

Kelly O’Meara spent almost 20 years working on Capitol Hill as a congressional staffer, and for 15 years wrote for the Washington Times-owned Insight Magazine, an investigative magazine that went straight to all the congressional desks. She brought to light some of the biggest scandals of corporate and government corruption, delivering groundbreaking investigative journalism on stories such as the Enron accounting fraud and the drugging of children (and adults and soldiers) through prescription antidepressants and ADHD drugs such as Ritalin. This, in turn, led her to an investigation of the AIDS story and to ripping apart the HIV narrative. It was through Kelly O’Meara that Catherine met Jon Rappoport, which resulted in many years of fruitful cooperation and some of the most important Solari Reports to this day.

But above all, Kelly Patricia O’Meara was the original reporter to break the Missing Money story! Writing for Insight, she was the first to publish a series of articles, starting in 1999, documenting and reporting on the missing money at DOD. It took tremendous courage, focus, and research to bring out piece after hard-hitting piece in a series that should have culminated in an Insight cover story in September of 2001 entitled “Wasted Riches.” (Solari has preserved all of her articles on our Missing Money website under News Coverage.) On September 10th, 2001—just before the final article’s scheduled publication and in an obvious attempt to preempt the breaking news—Donald Rumsfeld testified in Congress that the Pentagon could not account for $2.3 trillion in transactions. And, of course, we all know what happened the next day, crowding out and dwarfing any story on missing trillions….

In a league of its own, Kelly’s work stands out and is part of some of the most important Solari Report publications. We know her as an awesome researcher and as a woman with a heart of gold who cannot help but continue the freedom fight. She is Solari Hero not only for this week but has been for more than two decades.

We are highlighting Kelly O’Meara this week because she has recently started a new video podcast show called “Don’t Ask That Question” on which she intends to break more insightful news and information to connect the dots. To have her back as a New Media host is a great event. Please subscribe and help us support this Solari ally and amazing woman in as many ways as we can.
